Ditte Ejlerskov - The Cult of Oxytocin

With her exhibition "The Cult of Oxytocin", Ditte Ejlerskov creates a meditative total installation that is preoccupied with the cleansing properties of art, the healing power of colours and the eternal battle between the hormones oxytocin and adrenaline.

"The Cult of Oxytocin" is the first exhibition of the calendar year in Nikolaj Kunsthal. Ditte Ejlerskov’s exhibition occupies the entire house and offers duotone paintings, meditative video projections, woven rugs, virtual and 3D printed sculptures which are an elaboration of the Uffizi Gallery’s famous, antique marble sculpture The Wrestlers.

The virtual sculpture is a piece of crypto art – a so-called NFT - which has recently been bought by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Roskilde, the very first museum in Denmark to buy a digital 3D sculpture for its permanent collection. For some years now, Ditte Ejlerskov’s preoccupation with a virtual universe has been central to her artistic work.
